Critters abound this time of year.  A slight change in temperatures form the 100’s + days to some mid to upper 80’s must have critters thinking fall.  Seems strange to not see squirrels scampering around the trees but I suspect the traffic has thinned the population.

Warblers are back visiting the little patio.  They like to play hide and seek with my camera  : /

Here is a cute little human critter feeding the ducks.  Just loved how happy this little child was to be close to the ducks.

Fishing At The Duck Pond

On a late August afternoon Middle Grandson requested a fishing trip to The Duck Pond.  It is in the high 90’s, possibly above 100 degrees in Central Texas.  Pond temperatures are warm and the fishes settle toward the bottom at this time of day.  Pointing this fact did not deter the ‘need’ to fish.  With MG and his BFF we set off for the nearby Duck Pond, a favorite fishing hole for young kids.

Here are a few of the photos I shot while the guys did their thing.  Thank goodness there were benches in the shade!
